Hello. Good day. This is my 52-day-old nephew baby Zacharias Martin Calicdan. He was born premature last August 10, 2019 but his delivery date is supposed to be this end of October. He was delivered through caesarian section because my sister's pregnancy was critical, because of this baby Zach needs to stay in the incubator until his condition gets stable.
Every day his bill is getting higher including room charges, professional fees, etc. We already asked help from different government institutions including DOH and PCSO. Luckily, they can help once the final bill is out, however we are not sure yet about the percentage they are going to cover. Aside from this, we also asked help from the municipality of General Trias, Cavite but there is still no update until now.
The reason I decided to raise funds for our nephew is because we can no longer sustain his everyday needs. The money we get from all of our work and other sources are no longer enough to provide all of these. All of baby's needs (laboratory fees, everyday supplies, medicines, etc.) are paid through cash basis. This means we need to provide all of those apart from the hospital bill and need to be settled almost every day, every other day or weekly. The hospital cannot include those in the final bill because we need to pay at least half of the bill or more for them to be able to do that.
Aside from these, baby Zach's blood tests are still not normal and his blood platelets are low based on his CBC tests. Last time he went through a blood transfusion, but the doctor said he needs to undergo another one as soon as possible. We need a certain amount for his blood and some other tests.
Baby Zach is now at General Trias Doctors Medical Center (NICU). For now, he needs to stay there because that is the closest hospital to us with the facilities needed, including incubators, which our baby needs. According to the doctor all of his tests need to be normal and his weight needs to be at least 2 kilograms so we can transfer him to another hospital, which will cost lower.
We appreciate all of you taking the time to read this and our sweet little angel is knocking on your hearts for any help you can offer so he can survive and live a normal life. Any amount that you can donate will be very helpful for his everyday needs and medical bills. Also, if you can please share this to your family and friends, it will also be a great help.
Our whole family would like to thank you for your help and prayers for baby Zach. Thank you so much and may God always continue to bless and help us all.
